Class of Housing/Services: emergency shelter program.
The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) is Inter-Faith's emergency shelter program. The Network provides Montgomery County families with children who are experiencing homelessness with a safe place to stay, along with supportive services, for up to 90 days. Inter-Faith Housing Alliance is a partner with Your Way Home of Montgomery County.
Our shelter delivery model is unique and cost-effective. Twenty-two 'Host' and 'Buddy' Congregations serve our families for one month each year at their places of worship. Families are provided with comfortable accommodations in classrooms converted to bedrooms. Volunteers from the congregation, who collectively contribute more than 3000 hours of their time each year, prepare and share meals, provide overnight assistance, and help with transportation needs. Many volunteers make special connections to our families, often providing a level of genuine intrinsic support that bolsters our families and brings them further into a community that is invested in their success.
Our unique model can accommodate families of various compositions including two-parent households and male-headed households. Most families served are single-parent, female-headed households with young children.
